Subject: [videoblogging] Re: Question: what is the market value
The goal is to make is as easy and cheap as possible.
What I do:
1) decide to go some place "cool" on the weekend. I have always tried
to go cool places on the weekend way before I started to vlog. Now that
I am vlogging, I try to make extra sure I go somewhere cool. So, since
I am going to go to the place anyway, the "cost" of the video creation
part is zero.
2)Time shooting. I usually don't film more than five minutes at a time,
always of something different. I just pull out the camera and film a
bit as I move along my adventure.
3)I shoot with a Nikkon Cool Pix that captures in quicktime format. I
have no time converting.
4) Editing. I just load the clips I have filmed in order and do minimal
clipping at the front and back.
5)I add a quick and dirty title and some credits at the end. This takes
6) I usually use all my footage that I film.
7) Then I upload it. While it is uploading, I create the blog post
where the video will be embeded.
8) Once it is uploaded, I get the embed code and past it into the blog
post and upload that. I am now done.
When running smoothly, I have this process down to a half an hour after
the footage is filmed.
Check out my latest post. This took about a half an hour or less to put
it all together.
It is simple, but I think it works.
